The glyphosate connection put the chemical, and the toxicologist, near the center of a controversy that has already brought unwelcome attention to the agency’s handling of pesticides. In part because of the data overload, Congress decided in 1978 to change the requirements so that companies would only have to test “active ingredients” in pesticide products. All others would be considered “inert” and exempt from testing. From that point on, pesticide makers would also have the option of registering their products “conditionally,” which allows them to sell the chemicals without providing complete safety data to regulators.
CTIC is leading a new effort to pilot a phosphorus load reduction market in the Western Lake Erie Basin (Maumee, Sandusky, and Cedar-Portage watersheds, see map). CTIC keeps us informed of opportunities to participate in grants and meetings. This organization is a conduit to share information, and through CTIC, we have the opportunity to share what we are doing with other producers and organizations.
A jury recently returned a verdict awarding a California couple $2.055 billion in damages after the couple alleged that the glyphosate in Roundup caused their cancer. This is the third California jury to be convinced that the Monsanto herbicide, which was acquired by Bayer last year, caused or substantially contributed to a cancer diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. A lot has happened since we last reported on these lawsuits HERE and HERE, so it is time to look at the glyphosate lawsuits, jury verdicts, and the larger debate. ODNR suspends hunting and fishing license sales for non-residents. Read more about buy youtube subscribers here. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources announced this week that it is “temporarily suspending the sale of non-resident hunting and fishing licenses until further notice” to further discourage travel into the state.

With a great visualization tool and data going back to 2005, OpTIS is a powerful resource for grabbing a snapshot of land use practices or delving into trends. Insight from 2,020 farmers from across the country found that the planted acreage of cover crops continued its steady rise – reaching an average of 298 acres per farm in 2015 and projected to grow to a mean of 339 acres in 2016. Those figures are more than double the acreage survey participants said they planted in 2011. After cover crops, corn yields rose an average 3.4 bushels per acre, or 1.9 percent, after cover crops, and soybean yields increased 1.5 bushels per acre, or 2.8 pe … By bridging an important gap between basic research and drug development, ESCulab will facilitate the translation of fundamental scientific insights into innovative drug starting points.

The increasing population creates a huge demand for food products to feed the population. According to the FAO, the cropland per capita was reduced from 0.24 hectares per capita in 2000 to 0.2 hectares per capita in 2019; the shrinking area under agriculture will demand more produce from the available land. Agrochemicals are highly important in obtaining high yields as these are necessary to prevent pests and diseases in the field.
